This is the only post-1978 show I like to listen. Dark Star has some nice guitar & keyboard playing, and even on this SBD recording you can hear the crowd yelling and clapping their hands. Incredible.
Folks, hit the play button right now.

IT'S NOT FAIR
Still one of the reasons why I was a 1989 newbie. 114 shows later and still listen to this show more than any other. Always delivers. Thank you CM!

Oh, What the hell...
I'm reluctant to give a late-era show five stars but what the hell, this one deserves it. I always saw this show as a companion show to 9/26 (which I may actually rank a half-notch above this one) but since this one is available on the archive, this is what we've got.
What an incredible performance overall with an extra special second set. No one is going to compare this Dark Star to an early 70's version when it used to phase through several passages. This one is more akin to Space but still just amazing to hear not to mention that it's a fully-realized 20 minute version. I'd have to say that this is the best late period Death Don't with great vocals by Jerry, Bobby and Brent. Beautiful Attics to close off.
A great listen. Thanks again to Charlie Miller.

pretty good set list here, cool busting out dark star though i prefer the early versions, this one sounded like space basically except for the beginning bits
playin > uncle > playin was good and everything post drums was sweet, good tunes picked out, nice encore as well

jack-a-roe not row jimmy
below the info says theres a small patch in the beginning of row jimmy but i think he meant jack-a-roe seeing as there is a patch in the exact same spot thats specified for row jimmy. i think the other source for this has a better cassette patch for all the songs though. this is such a great show especially the attics encore.

the best night I can think of
Almost stopped seeing the band after this show. Figured it probably would be hard to top it again so why bother. Of course i kept going to the very end, but never did see anything that stood up to this night again. Truly a magical night where the band shined and the heads in attendance where treated to take part in a great musical experience. Loved it! I remember the lights coming on at the end and everyone just staring at each other smiling and yelling in total appreciation for what they had just performed. Jubilation is probably the best way to describe it.

TDIH: Jumping ahead a bit...
Couldn't wait till tomorrow (this day in history) to let this flow through my ears yet again.
My favorite show in the Brent era, and up there with some of the early years as well.
This show gets back to the primal elements of the Dead and the entire 2nd set is truly dripping with psychedelia to the Nth degree.
I can't imagine how those in attendance were not just leveled by the shear power of this one... the music here really sets itself apart from anything else they managed to do in the 80's - there really had to have been something special in the air this night.
